Day 36: Procrastination
My grandmother had such beautiful words of wisdom
that are forever etched on my heart,
But there was one saying that I would cringe
as soon as she said it...
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Why do it now when I can do it tomorrow?
What are you PROCRASTINATING to do today?
Is it the same thing that you have PROCRASTINATED to do from yesterday?
Doesn't the sun procrastinate
when it could come out today
but doesn't come out until tomorrow?
procrastinated "in the very beginning"
when HE said in Genesis~
"Let there be light "
"Let us make mankind in our own image ".
"It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."
What if GOD procrastinated~
"For to us a child is born, to us a SON is given, & the government will be on HIS shoulders. And HE will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty GOD, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).
What if GOD Did Procrastinate~
then the road to hell would be paved with good intentions!
But GOD did what HE said HE would do
"GOD is not man, that He should lie,
or a son of man, that HE should change HIS mind.
Has HE said, and will HE not do it?
Or has HE spoken, and will HE not fulfill it? " (Numbers 23:19).
GOD will do what HE said HE will do
GOD did what HE said HE would do~
"But when the fullness of time had come, GOD sent forth HIS SON, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, GOD has sent the Spirit of HIS SON into our hearts, crying,
“Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through GOD." (Galatians 4:4-7)
And HIS SON didn't procrastinate when HE Said~
"The SON of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men.
They will kill HIM, and after three days HE will rise." (Mark 9:31).
Like FATHER like SON~
JESUS didn't procrastinate
so HE could give us a
a new road to walk down~
A HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN~
paved with love
to walk daily
to our final destination,
but only if we don't
my grandmother was right~
my good intentions won't get me anywhere~
somewhere where I don't want to go.
and follow through with those good intentions~
by not only doing those daily things you have been putting off to do
first doing something you can't put off to do another time~
"that if you confess with your mouth the LORD JESUS & believe in your heart that GOD has raised HIM from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9).
Because the SON will not only come out tomorrow
HE is here today.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, & I will give you rest"
